A: Copper color, little head that lingered for a while
S: Surprisingly fruity for a lager, almost had a spicy note and a mild hop finish
T: Malty, spicy, with a floral finish. Served almost too cold, but I do prefer my craft a bit on the warmer side. Pleasant finish
M: Glided on down my gullet quickly! Not too thick, not too thin, just right. Good amount of carbonation without being too much
O: Good summer beer, perfect session lager @4.5%abv, and only ten minutes from my house!

This beer comes my way courtesy of woodychandler, who it appears has not reviewed it yet. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a deep golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a few malts, not picking up a lot. Taste is crisp, clean, some malts, a bit bready. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and decent beer.

A: The beer is clear yellowish amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving on a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass, a thin film of bubbles on the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of toasted and bready malts are present in the nose along with some notes of sweetness.
T: Like the smell, the taste has slight bits of sweetness with flavors of bready and toasted malts. No hops or bitterness are perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The clean nature of this beer makes it go down very easily, although there wasn't anything overly interesting in the smell or taste. This would probably better make for a better beer to pair with food as opposed to a standalone beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Pours crystal clear with a scant head that disappears quickly to a ring. Golden to orange in color

Smells of sweet toasted malt with a little bread yeast,

Peppery. Sweet malt, but with a somewhat disharmonic bitterness. Noticable yeastiness. A bit of cloy.

Drying, almost astringent. Biting on the tongue and in the throat.

Not bad, but it seemed raw to me. A bit on the green side. The alcohol burn was pretty substantial for a 4.5. I think it would improve if aged for a couple of weeks or so to mellow out.

A: Pours a clear medium to dark golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation rising rather quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint amber highlights. The beer has a finger tall fizzy foamy white head that reduces to a large patch of medium thick film with a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of toasted grain malts with just a hint of cracker malts along with a light to moderate aroma of floral hops and just a touch of spicy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of biscuit and toasted grain malts with a hint of cracker malts. That is followed by just a hint of honey-like sweetness and light to moderate flavors of floral + spicy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which lingers slightly.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp.

O: Overall this is a decent offering from a newer brewery available to me in the Triad area of NC - the alcohol is not as well hidden as I want it to be, there is a hint of fusel alcohol burning.
